KILSYTH HILLS & THE CARRON VALLEY FOREST
Taking the Tak-ma-doon road leads up from Kilsyth to the hills and the Carron
forest. The car park view point on the Tak-ma-doon road offers extensive views to Goatfell on Arran and to Bewick Law. The Carron Dam has picnic tables and toilets for visitors, and is popular for walking and
cycling as well as fishing. An interesting walk in the Kilsyth Hills for the experienced walker is from Kilsyth to Allenfauld, on to the Packmen's Graves (ref. 717813), to Tomtain, Garrel Hill, Laird's Hill,
Corrie, Balcastle and back to Allenfauld, Kilsyth. The round trip takes about just over 5 hours.
This busy small town lies mostly to the south of the River Kelvin and the line of the Antonine Wall. The Forth and Clyde Canal bisects the main street and has had many links with the town.
